Puccini: Madama Butterfly

When young Japanese girl Cio-Cio San marries American lieutenant B F Pinkerton, she is convinced that it is true love. Therefore she does not worry when he leaves Japan to return to America because, naturally, he will return to her.

But to Pinkerton, his Japanese marriage was merely a way to pass the time, and he realizes too late that playing with a young, impressionable heart can have dire consequences.

Lars Kaalund's romantic, critically acclaimed interpretation of Puccini's tragic drama is a tribute to Cio-Cio San, who insists on waiting for her beloved and continues to believe in her love, even when everything looks hopeless. The set designer, Christian Friedländer, and the artist and costume designer Pernille Egeskov have created an aesthetically beautiful and simple setting, mirroring the Western world's dream of the Far East with sweeping silk kimonos inspired by Hokusai's woodcut The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

Rossini: The Barber of Seville

The Golden Age of the silent movie in the 1910s and 1920s is the main source of inspiration for prizewinning theatre director Martin Lyngbo's debut as opera director.

True to the feel of the silent movies, this production promises speed and chaos as the young count tries to capture the heart of his beloved Rosina and spirit her away from her over-ambitious guardian, Don Bartolo.

In Martin Lyngbo's interpretation, Il barbiere di Siviglia becomes a tale of empathy and humanity in an age of tyranny, where everyone has their own agenda. There will be chaos and love, vengeance and celebration, pride and shame, feast and failure accompanied by laughter, smiles, anger and irritation.
